The Office of Rural Health and Primary Care (ORHPC) is excited to announce that the 2020 Annual Primary Care Resource Initiative for Missouri (PRIMO) Report has been published. Please see the link below for access to the 2020 Annual PRIMO Report.
The PRIMO Program focuses on improving health care delivery systems and increasing the number of primary care medical, dental, and mental health professionals working in rural and underserved areas of Missouri. The delivery of primary health care services depends on these groups of trained health professionals who provide high quality health care services and population based preventive, restorative and rehabilitative care.
PRIMO is operated by the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services. As a requirement of RSMo 191.411, the 2020 report can be viewed online at https://health.mo.gov/living/families/primarycare/primo/pdf/legislative-update2020.pdf. The report contains:
- A brief overview of PRIMO and its purpose;
